Today I had no problems to extract a 800 MB archive I created using RAR 2.50 for DOS back in 2008.
I also extracted an archive created using (command-line) WinRAR 5.71 x86. (As this is UNRAR 4.2x I'm unable to extract archives in RAR 5.0 format. So one has to use rar a -ma4 archive files when creating new archives on Windows/Linux/...)

Extraction was done in vanilla MS-DOS 6.22 running inside Virtual PC 2007.

Did anyone else try?
